Slicing with numbers
From Vincent :
In my case, this would be very useful (I could say it's a strong need) in the corporate events markets. It's very common to have prebuilded compositions with a precise "map" of the pixel space of every screen.
Last example, this week:
- we had 3 screens, horizontally aligned and separated by a precise space, let's say 100cm.
- the creative team created an After Effects composition of 5920x1080 (3 Full HD + 80px between the screens, as calculated from the actual projection screens sizes and the 100cm gap) and gave us a movie at this resolution
- we knew then that we had to create 3 slices at a size of 1920x1080 and to posiion them at the extreme left, precise center, and extreme right
It was very easy to position the slices precisely, but somewhat confused to change the sizes of the slices, and we lost in precision by doing in graphically.
This is really the way we're working on corporate events, and it would help to gain some 5 or 10 precious minutes during the setup of an event…
In Millumin V2, you can double-click a corner or an edge to edit its value numerically.

Your idea and these two should be combined.
